I was speaking to Joe Knight last year and he said he expected there would be a similar event to the 20th anniversary.

That is the extent of my knowledge, I’m afraid!

The 25th anniversary is January 2019 - not sure I'd fancy a cross-continent trip in the middle of a European winter - perhaps it will happen later in the same year

The launch was at the 1993 show, so it should be 2018, but the last anniversary event in 2014 was 20 years after it first went on sale in Europe, and took place in late May/early June, just in time to catch the opening of the Stelvio pass on the way back home wink

Brian, I think you should pop into the mayor's office while you're over there in September and ask him what's being organised laugh

The various regions in Italy hold annual Coupé meets. They are not quite as spectacular as the anniversary events that have been held in Turin but they are often 3 day / weekend events.

I just missed This One...

And This One Too frown

There were rumours about this but the Italian club officials I often speak to have been saying publicly that it is highly unlikely they'll organise another huge event like the 10th & 20th events. But highly unlikely is far from a definitely not.

That said I do know it took a great deal of time and effort from the fellows to arrange the last event and I'm not sure if are up for taking on such a task again.


We all loved the event but you would have to have been blind not to see how stressed some of those fellows were during the running of the event. I'm not sure if they really enjoyed it as much as we all did frown

oh, that's a grave shame...

it was stressful enough, bookending-the-convoy to Thirlstane last weekend (mostly blameable on the 2-way radios)

I can't imagine being at the helm of something that size...!

Awesome Bob what about this one also 15° 'Italia Classic Parade' raduno a Bardolino

The reason I ask is because many of the Italians speak little or no English but you'll find them on Facebook. Facebook has auto translate and this allows multi lingual conversations, each party just has to accept that it's not always 100%.

Countrycruising has just taken on the role of European rep for the forum so perhaps worth a chat with him in relation to a possible 25th anniversary trip?

Oh that's a good idea, someone to collate all the information and get the meets publicised.

Just got to convince people to get their coupés across the channel then. It will be a bit of a fright to all the minimal mileage, high value brigade smile

So far we've done just shy of 2700 miles on our current trip. We've got a few more days here then our next stop is in mid France before we head home. that will be about 900 miles if we don't deviate. But I just know we'll head off somewhere smile

Sounds great Bob, just a little over a month until I take mine for a five week round trip taking in France Switzerland Italy, and then back via Switzerland again, Luxembourg and back to the tunnel- can’t wait!

You'll love it smile

I must confess though - I've not got the coupé this time. I'm in a TT roadster - DSG but a diesel shocked paper loser

Ok finally yes Italy has released dates for a mini gathering on the 22nd & 23rd June 2109, I say mini as the weekend won't be anything like the 20th anniversary, they're keeping it small so no planned visit to the Pininfarina factory or the Lingotto roof top, it'll be meeting, a drive somewhere and then lunch so please if you think they're organising hotels etc like 2014 they won't be, if we go we'd have to book that ourselves and the feeling is they're going big again for the 30th in 2024.

While we've been waiting for dates I've been chatting with Rene who runs the Dutch club and now they/we know it's June the feedback is the dates don't work for their holiday period, I think many here in the UK would also struggle but we need your feedback. There's also a proposed road trip for late August where we could meet the Dutch and some other owners from France and Germany, travel and stay in France, Luxembourg, Austria back up the East side of the Alps, Germany, home or Holland, it needs further discussion for sure but either the club will be involved celebrating 25 years in form or another.

Thoughts?
